Originally released in 1996, at the height of Britpop, 'Moseley Shoals' reached No. 2 in the UK, amassed 92 weeks on the charts and sold a million copies world-wide. A low-key start to their career was boosted by two things - the endorsement of two of Britain's biggest pop stars - Paul Weller and Noel Gallagher, and the exposure given to the first single, 'The Riverboat Song', by Chris Evans on his hit TV show 'TFI Friday'. The album was produced by Weller's producer at the time, Brendan Lynch, giving it a strong, organic R&B feel (influenced by the Small Faces and Weller's solo recordings) with a pronounced '60s flourish, mixing in traces of Beatles and Stones, as well as elements of prog-rock and psychedelia, adding an even more eclectic flavour to their sound. The album contains three other UK Top 10 singles - 'The Day We Caught the Train', 'You've Got It Bad' and 'The Circle'.
